it and make it pro-growth. >> on the democratic side, senate majority leader harry reid told reporters he would like credit for what congress previously cut. >> we have already done a billion dollars worth of cuts. >> today, the top democrat in the house took a similar approach. >> i think it's important to note we have already agreed to $1.5 trillion in cuts in the budget control act and other acts in this session of congress. so now we wait to see the revenue piece to that. >> asked what she would be willing to slash as part of this deal? >> we'll be talking about that later. >> rank and file house members say they realize more must be done now. >> we can means test entitlements, so for folks making $1 million year, you know, maybe they aren't able to access medicare. they have the means to buy their own healthcare. >> i know we can't afford to spend $690 billion on the defense, but there are smart ways and dumb ways to cut defense spending. for example, we still have bases all throughout western europe that there hasn't been a threat to western europe since 1989. >> beyond that, he did
be spending about $3,000 more. >> harry reid kept the focus on the president's winning campaign message of letting the tax cuts expire on incomes over $250,000 a year. >> the people who have done so well during this difficult time with the economy, the richest of the rich are going to have to pay a little more to solve the financial problems we have this this country. >> this is what the campaign has been all about. congressional democrats are making sure the message is simple, consistent, to the point and easy to consume. recent comments from david plouffe as well as lawmakers left the president's strategy open to interpretation. progressives were concerned the social safety net programs were on the chopping block, but today democrats were unified in their approach. they are all on the same page. the president was reluctant to agree to a deal cutting medicare and medicaid benefits. president obama is seeking $1.6 trillion in additional revenue over ten years and $340 billion in health care savings. the time says the deal would not affect benefits. that's the keyword, benefits. the pres
cliff. democrats have harry reid. we have mitch mcconnell. get them in the room. no one gets all they want. if reagan and o'neill could do it, obama and boehner should be able to do it. >> it's the right approach, the one most beneficial for our economy, that protects the middle class and strengthens it and creates ladders of opportunity for those who aspire to the middle, to get there. >> it's time for the president to present a plan that rises above the reckless and radical voices on the hard left, that goes beyond the talking points of the campaign trail, and that has a realistic chance of passing the congress. the time, in other words, for campaigning is over. it's time for the president to lead. >> when you're $16 trillion in debt, the only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid becoming greece. and republicans should put revenue on the table. so i agree we shouldn't raise rates, but grover is wrong when it comes to we can't cap deductions and buy down debt. what do you do with the money? i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country,
's representative in the negotiation, and harry reid is telling a far different stories. john boehner and his caucus, the target, again, of senator reid's blame game. the senate majority leader insistent that republicans are the only onee in the way of the deal. reid asked point blank what the first thing would be, and he offered this curious answer. >> well, remember, we've already done more than a billion dollars worth of cuts. we've already done that. we need to get some credit for that and the negotiations that take place. lou: meanwhile, according to the white house, everything is not on the table, the table that a president is not scheduled to be seated at. carney confirmed that president obama will not find any extension of the bush tax cuts for the top 2% of the earners in the nation, and a look at the president's schedule for the remainder of this week shows nothing in the way of negotiations on it. the president reverting back to campaign mode as the white house decided to lobby for public support of his fiscal cliff policy positions rather than negotiate a compromise. president obama beli

of perfection. >> sean: democrats have gone a step too far, senate democrats with hairy reid leading the charge want to drastically change the filibuster egypt in order to oppose the republicans' opposition to certain legislation. look at what they said when president bush and the republicans were power. >> senate democrats represent the last check. republicans want to eliminate this check and give president bush power no president has ever had. the ability to hand out lifetime federal judgeships without consensus from the other party. never happened before. they think the senate should be a rubber stamp for this president -- i guess every president -- even if that president wants radical supreme court nominees and judges who will roll back our rights. >> everyone in this chamber knows that if the majority chooses to end the filibuster, if they choose to change the rules and put an end to democratic debate, then the fighting and the bitterness and the gridlock will only get worse. >> changing the rules of the senate has a long life to it. it's a precedent set in the senate that we will have to
leaders harry reid and mitch mcconnell on a possible change to set rules regarding the filibuster. forty-five minutes chief justice john roberts and the supreme court and constitutional law. after that, part of our coverage of the halifax international security forum, including a look at the u.s. role in global politics and the situation in syria. several live events tell you about tomorrow morning. former florida governor jeb bush will be speaking at the foundation for excellence in education. you can once that event here on c-span2 at 845 eastern. just after that at 9:00 a.m. eastern on c-span three the foreign policy initiative begins a daylong symposium on foreign policy. such a look at congress, national security was arizona senator john kyl. then on c-span, a forum on energy policy hosted by the bipartisan policy center. former senators and byron dorgan. that is at 10:00 a.m. eastern. >> on 16 of 17 bases in the united states we have military-run schools. the average cost to educate a child in that school per year is $50,000. almost four times what the rest of public education cost
to in 2011. majority leader harry reid has ruled that out this time and the number two democrat durbin repeated reid's position on sunday. >> social security does not add one penny to our debt. not a penny. it's a separate funded operation and we can do things, and i believe we should, now, smaller things, played out over the longer term that gives it solvency. medicare is another story. >> there's still staff level discussions going on. and, by the way, as much as washington gets caught up in the conventional wisdom of what senators are saying, remember right now the senate are 100 ehechted pundits. the game is between the white house and house republicans for now. at some point the action could move to the senate. but right now it's about the house. it's a possibility at some point folks on capitol hill expect the white house to call another meeting of boehner, mcconnell, reid and pelosi along with the president. at some point this week. though nothing is scheduled. the first major appointment that the president makes will probably come in the next week to ten days. just two candidat
of it in reaction to harry reid's dismal statement. i got an e-mail with it all in caps, the market is coming in on these headlines from harry reid. this matters, every word they say matters and white house press secretary jay carney was on the defense today. he pointed out as he had done yesterday that the president spoke on the phone with senate majority leader harry reid and john boehner over the weekend. and besides carney says, the president has to talk directly to the american people. >> it is vitally important that ordinary americans actively engage in this debate because the outcome of these negotiations and the hopeful product of these negotiations are the product that we hope emerges from these negotiations will profoundly affect their lives. >> so is the president, the missing ingredient to really nailing down a fiscal cliff deal? could he end the drama right now if he stayed put in washington and held a series of face-to-face meetings with reid, mcconnell, boehner, and pelosi instead of his planned meetings this week with small business owners, business leaders and middle class am
's democratic party. what you here from barack obama, harry reid, nancy pelosi, dick durban is not lowering all tax rates to get economic growth. you have a modern democratic party that is so far to the left that they believe in sunday amount alley anti-american concepts of radical wealth redistribution in order to equalize everyone. that is not what america is all b. the leading party that is leading the country in terms of the white house and congress really believes that by force, i don't mean by military force like the old school communist and social lists did, but by force of the tax code and redistribution of policies like obamacare they intend to force that on the american people. megyn: keurs te megyn: durbin chose two good people to make that example of. people don't love and reveer the hedge fund manager, they make other people a lot of money and they make a lot of money but most people have respect for our navy seals. is he on point? >> i do think he's on point. what monica just said, radical redistribution, we are talking about the radical redistribution is going back to the clinton
reid, the democratic leader, said to the president, mr. president, could you please leave the room? i have covered presidents for four years. i know of no other time where the president was asked the meeting in his own house that he had called. i asked the president about this. i said how did it feel to be voted off the island in your own house. because that is what happened. he said that he was not going to stand on protocol, that the problem needed to be solved. but in the next day, he called democratic leaders to the white house from 6:00 o'clock on a sunday night. and harry reid is there, the house leader, the relations between and among the democrats are so not solved, that harry reid, is a chief of staff, makes a presentation on the deal if reid is trying to work out with the republicans. in the course of doing that, david corn says to the president of the united states, in the oval office is in his house, i am disappointed in this white house and you for not having a fallback plan. literally, again. somebody reading of the president in the oval office for not having a plan. aft
's negotiatorring position is nothing but tax increases and harry reid would some of the senators may want to focus their attention on has announced there is no entitlement reform, so to argue that the taxpayers should take the brunt of this battle and they should not defend taxpayers but the spending interests in washington, strikes me as odd. the effort by some to get entitlement reform, the democrats have said heck no and harry reid has said it ain't happening, and they ought to look at that, rather than trying to raise taxes to pay for obama's bigger government. >>neil: do you hear it is spreading? we have chatted about this before. you were open when we chatted in washington, to talk about the cliff cliff, to not equateing bringing in causes or tax loopholes and the like and closing them off, your point was as long as it leads eventually to revamping of the tax code, but this goes beyond that, they have no quid pro quo and they are offering this, you argue, what? >>guest: well, there are two ways you can damage the economy. one is to increase marginal tax rates, everyone knows the small busine
. harry reid, the democratic majority leader, wants to make some changes. debate has to start before a filibuster can begin. he might require any senator wishing to filibuster to stand up there and talk to which republicans are saying if you do that, we the minority are going to burn the place down. senator tom coburn of oklahoma saying, "i think the backlash will be severe. if you take away minority rights because that's what you're doing, you'll destroy this place. if you destroy the place, we'll do what we have to fight back." john cornyn says if democrats change the rules, it will shut down the senate, it's such an abuse of power. you might ask how their threats of a shutdown differ materially from the shutdown senate now when the minority will not allow a majority vote on anything giving them the power to control the senate. we called the two senators and asked specifically what they propose to do if they manage to tweak the filibuster. senator cornyn's office got back to us, but not with an answer. senator coburn did not respond, but he did give politico.com a hint of what he m
and majority leader reid will be recognized to speak and will likely outlined the schedule for the day which could include debate on defense programs and policy, and possibly legislation to do with equal rights, people with disabilities. centers will us from 12:30-2:15 eastern for weeks the party meetings. live coverage of the senate and members gavel in right here on c-span2. right now some debate from the floor of the senate yesterday between majority leader reid and republican leader mitch mcconnell. d, w they talkede about potentialit't changes to filibuster rules. here's some of what they had to say. >> i'd like to turn to anotheras issue that doesn't grab as manyt utadlines as these others we'veb been focus on the last few days o the mortal threat that has been quietly gathering against one of the most cherished safeguards of our government. i'm referring to the latest effort by some on the other side, most of whom have never served a day in the minority, to force a change in senate rules at the beginning of the new year that would fundamentally change the character of the senate. this
as leader reid and leader durbin mentioned, had a lot of things we didn't like. it had some things we liked, particularly making sure that no benefits in medicare, social security and medicaid were cut. but it's now time for congress to get back to our regularly-scheduled programming, and that means jobs. while washington has been consumed with averting a default, our nation's unemployment problem has been worsening. it's time for jobs to be moved back to the front burn wither. with this debt reduction package completed, the decks are now cleared for a single-minded focus on jobs in september. by removing the threat of default for the next 18 months and by proving that both parties can come together to get our deficits under control, we have provided certainly to the credit markets. the debt limit agreement largely resolves the budgets for the next two years, so the wrangling over spending should be greatly reduced in coming months. we now have the chance to pivot away from budget battles to jobs. we can reset the debate, and that's what we intend to do. the jobs issue won't have to play se
from the senate majority leader harry reid overnight really sparked some jitters in this session today, so we have red across the board. the shanghai composite, it is well and truly below that 2011 level, shedding another .9 of a percent. the hang seng was feeling some of that pressure from chinese stocks and shedding .6 of a percent. it was the mainland banks that were the culprit. they didn't fare as badly if the mainland. some capital requirement rules are going to be implemented that are raising concerns about loans and the ability of these major banks to give out loans the remainder of year. we have the kospi in south korea down .7 of 1%. we had a north korean launch site showing increased activity. that just increased the jitters in this market. the japanese markets, they have really been on a rally, on a roll, on a tear over the last few weeks. the nikkei 225 has gained more than 9% just the last two weeks alone. the yen had something to do with this. it did strengthen a little bit against the dollar, and it continues to do so, down about half a percent as you just mentioned. so
, they have a good opportunity in front of them. >> we heard senator reid said when asked he couldn't name any of the cut the democrats are willing to offer in the fiscal cliff negotiations. he said, "we need to get credit for cuts previously made." this is today. the cut previously made. i'm scratching my head to figure out what cuts the democrats made prior that they want credit for. if they did make credit cuts why did we run up four more years in a row? start fresh right now. talk about cuts and then talk about how are we going to raise revenues. >> eric: what would -- >> dana: what would harry reid mean by that? get credit on cuts they made. on what? >> bob: that is a $60,000 question. i'm not sure what he is talking about. but i know there will be cuts if entitlement program. readjust in the the entitlement program. there will be a tax increase on the wealthier americans of some size. i cannot believe that obama is going to travel around the country to make us think about this. if he doesn't think he will get them to go along with some marginal increase rates. >> dana: good point. let's
on the table, but senate majority leader harry reid did embrace republicans who have turned against one of the party's most influential forces. >> one obstacle standing beyond congress and compromise, grover norquist. bullying lawmakers willing to put their oath of office and promised to serve constituents ahead of the pledge to lead this antitax sell it. his brand of ideological extremism has been bad for congress and work for -- worse for the country. distancing themselves this week. i appreciate that very much. lou: with the majority leader's things we turn now to the man at the center of mr. reed's spewing of vitriol, of variable stream. we are joined by grover norquist , president of americans for tax reform. i have to ask you. how does it feel to be a bully of lawmakers? i like this part especially, anti-tax sell at. the logical extremists. to find yourself is really being pointed that as the problem, not part of the solution here suddenly. how do you feel that? >> well, look. harry reid had a plan. he and obama and nancy pelosi were going to spend a great deal of money, and then
is out of the hospital tonight. the senator checketd himself into walter reid yesterday for what she called a routine procedure. no word on that what that was. he is 89 now. he won the republic nomination in '96 but lost to president clinton. i'm shepard smith. this is the fox report. it's the bottom of the hour, time for the top of the news. and you know that one friend who just won't let you get a word in edge wise, the u.s. senate has a friend like that. his name is filibuster. it's really a technique that lawmakers use to hold the legislation that they don't like. a senator or group of senators refuses to get off the floor and that group can kill the bill that way. now, the senate majority leader harry reid is threatening to push for a change to the filibuster rules that would give minority members less power. but the minority leader mitch mcconnell says that would be the equivalent of blowing up the senate. doug mckelway with the news live on capitol hill for us tonight. doug, they call it the nuclear option. >> yeah, they call it the nuclear option because the party that exerci

of taking the economy off the fiscal cliff is harry reid, president obama, he says he wants to compromise. he says there's only two options here, take the economy off the fiscal cliff or do it my way. that doesn't sound like something he's willing to negotiate in good faith. so, listen, republicans want to restore confidence and certainty to this economy. i don't think want to play brinkmanship, the way to do this is through pro-growth tax reform. i'll quote the numbers again. you'll get ten times the amount of revenue by growing the economy, $750 billion versus the measly $68 billion that the president's proposing by punishing success. i think that would work far better. >> and you're saying revenue because by taxing the wealthiest americans, it cuts off what has been referred to as job creators from actually getting americans to work so we have more americans working that are then paying into the tax system. >> thomas, i'm one of those job creators, those small business people. i could have explained to him what's on the minds of job creators, the people that make those investment decis
. majority ritter harry reid hopes the senate to work, 2013 defense program. off of the 4 u.s. ambassador susan rice meet with republican senators discussing the september attack on the consulate in benghazi, libya and she will talk with susan collins and senator bob corker. yesterday she sat down with senator mccain, gramm and ayat. senator mccain told reporters the information she gave the american people was incorrect, but a spontaneous demonstration triggered by hateful video. it was not and there was compelling evidence that the time that was certainly not the case. the house transportation and infrastructure committee is holding at hearing on amtrak's restructuring plans. the committee will hear from the inspector general and amtrak's president and representative from the united transportation union live at 10:00 eastern on our companion network c-span.

. >> also late tonight, harry reid said the three republicans are politicizing the benghazi matter, calling it, quote, outrageous. >> shepard: catherine herridge in washington. the white house and congress have five weeks to keep us from going over the fiscal cliff at the end of the year. that would mean automatic tax hikes and spending cuts at the same time and an economists say it could cause another resomething. the president met with congressional leaders from both parties, but harry reid says there has not been much progress since then. mike emmanuel is on capitol hill. republicans are asking for changes to social security and medicare. any common ground? >> shep, in public, it does not sound like it. top republican leaders say if you want to avoid the fiscal cliff, you need to address the drivers of our debt. >> we know that the only way we can solve our long-term debt and deficit problem is to fix the unsustainable growth rates of our very popular entitlement programs. the president has from time to time indicated an openness to that. now is the time to actually do it. >> 42 business
is joy ann reid, and ana marie cox, washington correspondent for the guardian. thank you both for joining me tonight. >> good to be here. >> ana marie, let me start with you. do republicans see the writing on the wall in this tax debate? >> i think they do. obviously some of them do. and i have to say, this is like a very weird place to kind of like stake your claim, like this is what you're going to commit political suicide over. there are actually other conservative ideals that i understand the philosophical principles behind and why you might go to the mat on this one. but this was -- as the president said, this was something that was decided by the election. this is not something that people were wishy-washy on. americans don't mind if you raise taxes on the very wealthy. not only do they not mind but they want this. i think it only makes sense for republicans to at least do what tom cole has said, which is to settle for this now and then if you want to have that fight later, if you want to make your debate points later, go ahead and do that. at this point, the memory so fresh with wh
object, or have mitch mcconnell say i object. harry reid says, oh, well, we move on to the next thing and that's the end of it. >> that's the way they do it. they double track it. they say we'll talk about other business now. what do you think is going to be the way the senate decides this? will it be partisan whether they decide to go to a real filibuster, you go to the mattresses, you stay up all night and force quorum calls over and over again? or they give up on change? what do you think is going to be the politics of this? >> the politics right now is mitch mcconnell is absolutely opposing any change in the rules because he has the advantage of paralyzing the senate with no public accountability. the talking filibuster forces his process to be done before the american people, and i think he realizes the american people are not going to like what they see. and yet that's where it should be. if you don't have the courage of your convictions to stand before the american people and say, i am obstructing this bill and here is why, then, in fact, you should shut up, sit down, and let t
ths to feed the bean address the beast. the argument you hear from many democrats even harry reid today, ying that elections have consequences, and this one americans voted for this. yoyou can. i don't know they voted on more spending. >> there is some truth to what you say. >> a lot. >> all truth. neil: a little. >> we're in the pregehmannal sis, thi -- we in the pregame analysis, does everyone believe we're getting threw this without any spending cuts, of course, not, here is what is going on happen decemr 31 we take steps to resolve some tax issues, it will have a lot to did with how we approach taxes next year, you will seeesome discussion, on cutting some spending but is that going to be carried over? neil: here is what i'm worried about. my point is -- >> you and i will remember this you were not even born. >> 92 neier was i then. neil: you are right. >> he was responsible. neil: idea was, i will raise taxes if you guise come back with spending cuts, he raised taxes, they did notome back with spending cuts. are republicans risking going down the same politically disastrous r
to be a new day with these guys. harry reid was very pessimistic. this is a traitorous market, we will see a lot of volatility going to the end of the year. melissa: it is like a ping-pong match. thank you very much, and very interesting day right now we are glad everybody is watching this, focusing on the fact one sentence close the market around. voicing his optimism they could reach a deal with the white house and avoiddthe fiscal cliff. looking at the oneesentence in that one word, optimism. >> that is right, with the president's remarks that he would like to see framework to avoid the fiscal cliff by christmas. sitting treasury debt up to capitol hill tomorrow to meet with congressional leaders, democrats and republicans. in the meantime the president keeping up the pressure on republicans from here to extend expiring tax cuts for middle-class taxpayers, but let them expire for wealthier taxpayers. take a listen. >> the place where we already have and three complete agreement right now is on middle-class taxes. as i have said before, we have two choices. if congress does nothing, ever
's stephen colbert territory. that's harry reid. that's what they say. that's nonsense. people take the pledge but the reason why most republican than a handful of democrats take the pledge is the only 10 to raise taxes. we just and the pledge of in the mail and people make that commitment and campaign on it and make it part of -- >> if you're running in a republican primary, it's very helpful to you, effectively difficult to run in a republican primary without signing it. they are in a box. the republicans, county and look for a way out of? >> no. which general have is a little so here's complicated bill. it's got a lot of moving parts. does it raise taxes? look, it's pretty clear in those cases. the important part of the pledge is it allows people to credibly commit they're not going to raise taxes and the people know who and what they are. is allowed john boehner and mitch mcconnell to govern recently. it's about the republican governors passed out ushers at the red states for the 24 states republican governors, republican legislature. blue are the 13 of 40 state spending on how
to raise the debt ceiling. first, senate majority leader harry reid and republican majority leader mitch mcconnell will talk on the senate floor about the january fiscal deadline. >> since our country voted to return president obama to the white house, i have spoken often about compromise. i remain optimistic that, when it comes to our economy, when it comes to protecting middle-class families from a whopping tax hike, republicans and democrats will be able to find common ground. president dwight eisenhower, a republican, once said, "people talk about the middle of the road as though it were unacceptable. there have to be compromises. the middle of the road is all usable space." so said white house and higher. -- dwight eisenhower. too often, we face off, not realizing that the solution rests somewhere in the middle. i remind everyone of one fact. this congress is one vote away from avoiding a fiscal cliff for middle-class families and small businesses. we can solve the greatest economic emergency facing the nation today if only the house would consent the senate-passed bill freezing --
and senator reid over the weekend. he will meet with them at the appropriate time as well as obviously nancy pelosi and mitch mcconnell. so, the process that he began is continuing. we continue to be optimistic that a balanced approach is achievable. we know what the solutions are. i think what was said in an op-ed, one benefit of all the debates we've had, negotiations and discussions over the past couple of years on this issue is we know what the parameters of a balanced solution to these challenges looks like. they include both spending cuts and revenues, and entitlement reforms. they have to have all three legs to be a part of it. >> host: jay carney yesterday at the white house when he was asked about this idea of going off the fiscal cliff. he has had at his press briefing yesterday thousand, the chairman of president obama's council of economic advisers. to talk about what would happen if we go off the so-called fiscal cliff, and in this report put out by the white house, american consumers will spend 200 billion less in 2013 if the fiscal cliff is not a bird according to this white h
reid on the floor of the senate only moments ago. listen to him. >> unfortunately there is one obstacle standing between you and congress to compromise, grover norquist. for years he has bullied lawmakers willing to put their oath of office or promise to serve constituents ahead of their pledge to this antitax zealot. his brand of ideological extremism has been bad for congress and even worse for the country. i was pleased to see republicans in congress distance themselves from norquist this week. i appreciate that very much. bill: here now to react. grover norquist, americans for tax reform. good morning to you. >> sure. bill: harry reid, what do you think about that? >> well, only senator harry reid of nevada could pack that many lies into something quite that short. look, the taxpayer protection pledge as harry reid well knows is a commitment by senators and congressmen to their constituents, not to me personally, reid tells that lie over and over again, a commitment to their constituents that when they come to washington they will reform government and spend less money, rather than
't be just being against the democrats. and against harry reid and against obama. you have to be for things, and we have to give them something like the contract with america, that we gave them some years ago. we have to give them something to be for. and as far as young women are concerned, absolutely. i don't think anybody like me, i can state my position on abortion, but, to -- other than that, leave the issue alone. when we are in the kind of economic situation and, frankly, national security situation we're in. >> chris: when you say leave the issue alone, you would allow, you say, freedom of choice? >> i would allow people to have those popinions and rec those opinions and i'm proud of my pro-life position and record and if someone disagrees with me, i respect your views. >> chris: senator mccain, thank you as always for coming in today, you will have a busy final weeks here in 2012. >> we certainly will. thank you, sir. >> chris: thank you. up next 'tis the season to shop and spend, but the upcoming fiscal clip put a damper on consumers and investors? ♪ we're sitting on a bunch of
republicans not convinced. but top democrats like harry reid coming to her rescue saying, and i'm quoting here, the personal attacks against ambassador rice by certain republican senators have been outrageous and utterly unmoored from facts and reality. today she's back on the hill, meeting with the head of the homeland security committee saying she's not sure they have 60 votes to confirm her if, in fact, she's nominated. lynn >>> well, jill kelley, the tampa socialite caught up in the scandal involving former cia chief david petraeus, is now going on the offense. after two weeks of silence kelley's lawyers has released e-mails he wrote designed to prove she never intentionally or acted inappropriately. one letter to the u.s. attorney demands to know who in the government leaked kelley's name to the media after she received e-mails from petraeus biographer and mistress paula broadwell. meanwhile, "the new york times" reports the pentagon investigation into e-mails between kelley and general allen t top nato commander in afghanistan, has been narrowed down to between 60 and 70 messages that ac
be reached. this comes on the heels of yesterday when you had harry reid expressing caution about the fact things ar were nt going that well. we are seeing the market to the downside, they have improved and you can see it spiked up. alaska mitra said to them. dagen: speaking of house speaker john boehner, he said he is optimistic. >> i'm optimistic we can work together to avert this crisis sooner than later. connell: we also want to show you this, this is skepticism from who you would think would be a major player in the deficit talks. >> i am really worried we have a probability we could go over the cliff, and that would be catastrophic. not to go over the cliff, we have to compromise, have to have revenue. the problems are real, the solutions are painful, no easy way out. the only way you can do this ifs to have a balanced approach and that is where people are headed. connell: matt welch is here. what do you make of all this, matt? >> there is nobody at the table actually interested in cutting the size of the government. that seems strange to democrats who think we're living in some sort
, they are not going to be mad of the him for long. joining me now is msnbc's joy reid. how are you? >> i'm doing well. >> so much as i think they will one day come to forgive chris christie, watch how his recent visit to "saturday night live" played with eric bowles. >> let's look at the republican acting like a democrat governor chris christie slobbering a wet kiss on president obama's cheek with days until the election. then this curious appearance on "saturday night live" while jersey still suffers from power outages and massive job losses. >> slobbering wet kiss. do you think i'm underestimating this? >> i think it will take longer to heal. your theory is sound as far as getting relelkted in new jersey. he did the right thing when it comes to remaining governor of new jersey. but i think that the idea that he can be forgiven enough by the base to run for president in 2016 presumes that republicans are going to basically do a punch the base strategy. because look, the part of the party that's about winning elections, the sort of wing that's the political wing, definitely is going to look to chris
